During storytime today, we talked a bit about the benefits of nursery rhymes. This Friday storytime, as well as many other storytimes throughout the week, include various traditional nursery rhymes (Baa Baa Black Sheep, Ring Around the Rosy, Hickory Dickory Dock, to name a few.) As stated in an article from the PBS website, nursery rhymes are “good for the brain. Not only does the repetition of rhymes and stories teach children how language works, it also builds memory capabilities that can be applies to all sorts of activities.” I hope you are able to find times during your day to sing nursery rhymes with your child. The Chelmsford Public Library offers lots of books and resources for learning nursery rhymes.
We also read this story together today.
